Stephen R. Covey’s “The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People”

The Snowball Effect (Case Study)

Creating a profitable passion business is like climbing a mountain:

You’re at the basecamp, watching that huge peak you’re about to climb, and it feels almost intimidating. After all, it will take thousands and thousands of steps to get to the top.

Launching your lifestyle business is similar:

The climb is a bit scary at first, but the secret is to make the first step. And then make another one. And another one.

That’s what Peter Fritz did, with the help of our 365 Days to Freedom program.
